The end of our Cuban vacation was spent at a resort in Varadero. It was a dream: beautiful sand, astonishingly turquoise water and a relaxed atmosphere. We stayed at the Iberostar Laguna Azul, a large resort from the Iberostar chain, however despite the size, the grounds did not feel overrun with other tourists. The resort was a welcome for us after a week of touring around Matanzas and Havana.
We spent our days reading, sleeping, eating (& drinking!) and enjoying the sea and pools. We left the resort only one time when we went to another Iberostar resort for our friend’s wedding. The wedding was beautiful, a ceremony on the beach, a poolside reception, and unlike any other wedding I’ve been to, it ended with everyone in the pool and then a group “dip” in the sea!
